A new way of looking at lifelong learning...
Why is *this* Adult Education Institute different from every other Adult Education institute? Because at GJC, it’s all about The Connection. Whether you are looking for a “Sacred Spark” to kindle your curiosity or are interested in taking a “Deeper Dive” into the wellspring of Jewish tradition, there is something for you! Within these pages, we are proud to announce a wide range of workshops, courses, and immersive experiences that present opportunities for engagement with Jewish text, creative expression, history and culture in a way that is relevant to our lives in the 21st century. This year, may we grow both as individuals and as a community through our learning, through our journeys and through our connection to one another.
~ Rabbi Alanna Sklover, Director of Lifelong Learning
